- Designed for economical throttling of flow
- Suitable for on off service of clean fluids
- For vertical and horizontal orientations
The VV Series Angle Seat Valve is designed for economical throttling of flow, and is particularly suitable for on off service of clean fluids. The 45O angle seat (Y-pattern) design allows for the valve to be installed in both vertical and horizontal orientations and for simple top-entry maintenance while the valve is installed in line. The VV Series Angle Seat Valve is available in a True Union body design, in PVC with EPDM seals and PTFE gland packing. VV Series Angle Seat Valves are part of our complete systems of pipe, valves, and fittings, engineered and manufactured to our strict quality, performance, and dimensional standards.
